Abstract:

A lower bound ts of the life time of an evaporating droplet is determined. It is assumed that the droplet is at rest relative to its hot environment and that combustion of the vapor takes place in a moving front. In the paper a nomogram is determined which simplifies the computation of the bound ts. It is shown in an example that the upper bound for the evaporation coefficient, which follows from ts, exceeds experimental data by a factor between 2 and 3. Applications of this thermochemical and the preceding aerodynamic decay of a droplet are discussed for one flight state of the combustion chamber of a jet engine. Author
